I was educated at Oxford University, reading Latin and Greek at The Queen's College. The college's outstanding poet is Ernest Dowson.

I was awarded a Doctorate on the Roman epigrammatist Martial in 1994.

The following year I had a breakdown and had to abandon the academic life. The year after that the Muses came. Nothing has been the same since.

Best Poem of Richard George

After An Exam

Finished! So has she,
With ages left to go:
